Get ready for some family fun! Cuirim Shoebox Night is an evening at Grace Church created to give you and your family a taste of Mexican culture while putting together special Christmas boxes for Mexican children (connected with Cuirim Outreach) who may never have received Christmas gifts. Come experience authentic Mexican cuisine, traditional Mexican games, and swing at the Piñatas while making a difference in the lives of others!
How the Cuirim Shoebox Night works:
- Purchase items from the list below. Please purchase only items that are listed, no candy/food. Bring them with you when you come.
- When you arrive on Nov 8, hang out until dinner starts. When you get in line for food, you’ll pay either $15 or $20 ($20 max/family). This cost is so we can cover dinner and to send 1 Christmas Box across the border into Navojoa for a child there. If you’d like to send more boxes, each additional box is $10 to ship.
- As a special treat, Mexican Coke will be on sale for $2/bottle all night extra.
Items You Can Put Inside (boxes are 4x4x8 inches in size):
- Child’s toothbrush
- Pens, pencils & small box of crayons
- Pencil sharpener or eraser
- New children’s socks. Don’t worry about the size, if the size doesn’t fit the child who opens the box, he will trade with another child for a size that fits.
- As many small toys as you can fit in the box (matchbox cars, bouncy balls, hair accessories, tiny plush toys)
- NO candy, toothpaste, or playing cards
